Which shims would I need? Please.

Ok to start with I know I need a valve job,ok we got that out of the way so now you dont need to tell me I am wasting my time by shimming the valves.

Ok on my left intake I have a #155 shim and the clearence is at .002 so which one would I need for that one?

Ok on the right intake valve the shim is a 165 and the clearence is at .004 so which one would I need for that one.

I know I need .006 on each valve,the shim chart confuses me,I dont want to get the wrong shims so I figured I would come on here and ask,since they sell them in MM sizes which one would I need in the metric size

Thanks,Doug

Your right intake will be perfectly fine at .04 I have been running both intakes there foe well over 100 hours with no problems. Lots of people on here run .04 as it is easier on the valves

That shim will get you to the .04 I recommended

Hay racer19 thanks for your help,do you still have the stock valves in your bike?

yes i do. I am going to be getting my head rebuilt next month. but my bike is an 03 with well over 200 hours on it. My valves are starting to go so its getting a complete rebuild, New piston, crank, bearings, seals, ect.

You should pick up a 1.50 while your at it.

      I need recommendations on Honda dealers with good Mechanics in Western Washington. I am in Puyallup but will drive for peace of mind. I have never had a dealer do major work on any of my dirt bikes. But long story short I am on a 15 CRF450R and it needs the 5th gear recall done. Any and all info is much appreciated!

      I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
      I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine.  I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
      Thanks guys.

      So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
      Nicholas, 
      The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.  
      The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process.  So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”.  It would have to be installed at our shop.  
      Fork PSI I would recommend:
      Inner 160 psi
      Outer 11 psi
      Balance 160 psi
       
      Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
      Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
